What is the difference between new business success and failure? How do you define an entrepreneur? Not everyone agrees on a conclusive answer to any of these questions but there are plenty of people seeking the answers. During this course students will explore the entrepreneurial environment in the context of Croatia and beyond. They will discover what makes an entrepreneur tick, and develop skills and experience to either be one themselves or at least be a valuable, knowledgeable human resource to one in the near future.
